Default No, I don't need a blow off tube....

Just got done posting in another thread about how fermcap has reduced my karausen levels and then I walk in to the room that I am fermenting my american wheat with s-04....






And the ceiling shot...

It happens to everybody, at least once! Earlier this year, my APA blew it's stack and evenly coated the interior of my chest freezer.

Where are you guys finding these cool square milk crates that exactly fit a carboy?!? I can only find rectangular ones, which is a non-solution.

Hrm...I've never seen a rectangular milk crate. Must be a regional thing.

It happens to everybody.... 2 years ago I made a belgian tripel... i ptched the yeast in the evening and the following morning there was foam everywhere... but I was using a plastic fermenter so the pressure opened it and there was no "explosion" :-D

Wheat beers, heck I have had one blow off my blowoff tube. Yes I contribute to global warming and the increase of C02.

Convenience store item. Sitting outside waiting for the delivery guys who still use them to deliver milk. Also the rear of supermarkets.

Happened to me about a week ago with my first homebrew. I was naive in thinking it wouldn't happen to me.....I was wrong.

Blow off tube FTW next time!
